WPoF condemns attack

January 2015

Nous sommes tous Charlie

 

WPOF strongly condemns the appalling attack on the Parisian magazine Charlie Hebdo.

We live in a liberal democracy, with a right to free speech, including the right – within legal constraints – to say things which may offend some people.  That includes people of faith, who have the freedom to practise their religions, but must also accept that those religions can be the subject of critical comment.

Violence in the name of religion against free speech is a profanation of the Name of God.  WPOF represents a range of faiths, none of which endorse any form of destruction of human lives. We do not accept that any faith justifies such violence.
